1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL
This special example is a two-owner gem with only 68,211 miles!!! It is a completely original car that has never seen salt and has absolutely no rust. This is a near-perfect, show-quality example. No expense has ever been spared to maintain the car. The maintenance manual is full of stamps and in addition there are receipts for the last seven years. It was just fully serviced by the local M-B dealer on 8/3/07 and they went completely over the car ($1500).
The car is perfectly straight and obviously accident-free. The ORIGINAL paint is nearly perfect with barely a blemish. All of the chrome and plastic and rubber trim is perfect. The interior is also in mint condition. The dash is crack-free and the seats and carpets are exceptional. The door panels and center console are perfect. The car is extremely clean and shows no signs of ever being smoked in. The convertible top is perfect and the factory hard top with rolling cart is included. The hard top has just had the seals replaced.
The car runs and drives exceptionally smooth, quiet and tight. There are no strange noises. There are no fluid leaks. Everything functions on the car.
IN CONCLUSION this 380SL is a needle in a haystack find. Why bargain-hunt high-mileage cars when shopping for an older SL? Buy the best, you will never regret it.
